When trying to find ways to add decoration to the lawn, solar yard lights are a perfect choice. They do not increase the electric bill and there are no extension cords laying all over the yard. These lights can be used in a number of different ways for adding illumination to all sections of the yard.
The installation is a very easy task and once installed the maintenance only requires changing a battery on occasion.
This type of yard light has become extremely popular due to the amount of security lighting they provide as well as the low cost of purchase and great environmental benefits.
They are good for along walkways, around the patio or a garden area.
At first the solar lights were attractive to buyers due to the no wire installation. The light is placed in the ground and only requires sunlight to operate for a bright illumination at night.
We are all always on the lookout for ways to be environment friendly and the use of sun as a power source is a perfect way to get started going green. These lights are functional from a small solar panel which collects the power from the sunlight during the daytime hours.
The power is stored in the battery which will illuminate the light at night fall. Maintenance is simply changing the battery on occasion.
The solar lights are very inexpensive as well as cost efficient. They are usually found at all home improvement and many discount stores.
For an initial investment of less than twenty dollars a solar light will last for several years. They are excellent for installing beside a walkway for use as security lighting during the night.
The installation is super easy and can be completed in only a few hours. When installing the lights it is best to place them in areas where there is direct sunlight in order to give a longer lasting light.
The light can be installed in low sunlight areas; they just will not be lit for as many hours as with full sunlight.
For landscaping additions, solar yard lights look great in flower beds and will add drama to the area housing a flag pole. Simply place lights in the ground around the base of the pole and aim the light up.
For a business these are great ways to save money when illuminating a business sign at night. Place three or four lights in front of the sign with them aiming up towards it.
